About the Charity

When starting The Sol Company we thought it wasn’t enough just to create a business that supported ethical purchasing. So each time you make a purchase, a portion of the sale goes to a charity that is helping to end global poverty. Our current charity partner Clarenville Connect works hand in hand with World Vision Canada to help children and their families in a small area of rural Honduras. World Vision’s sustainable development model promotes a hand-up and not a hand-out. Through child sponsorships and fundraising efforts, they are empowering the residents of Honduras to become self-sufficient by building relationships, learning about their needs and helping them to achieve their goals. We’ve had the privilege of visiting Honduras twice in the last 7 years where we spent time with the sponsored children and saw firsthand the fish farms, family gardens, honey farm, school computer lab and many other projects that World Vision helped them to establish and now they are running on their own. These projects help the residents to provide for their families and even make a living. If you have any questions about World Vision or are curious about how much we enjoyed our trips feel free to reach out to us, we’d love to hear from you!
